Throughout Season 1 and Season 2 and even to the end of season 3, Eleven has gradually had her powers become stronger and more useful. Being the superhero of the world that she is, she and her crew always used her powers to save the world from Evil attacks, which seemingly happen every now and then. Up until the attack of Mind Flayer on Jim Hopper’s cabin in Stranger Things Season 3 Episode 7, everything was only getting stronger about Eleven’s powers.
However, on episode 7 and episode 8 of Stranger Things Season 3, things take a negative turn for both Eleven and her friends. On the episode named “The Bite”, Mind Flayer attacks Eleven along with her friends Nancy, Jonathan, Lukas, Mike and Max at Jim Hopper’s cabin. Although Eleven managed to save herself and her friends from the terrible attack, when she gets to the Starcourt mall along with her friends, she falls to the ground, wailing in agony when it is discovered that the Mind Flayer has terribly injured Eleven’s left leg.
Eleven later understands that during the fight with Mind Flayer, she got attacked by Mind Flayer and a small portion of Mind Flayer got inside his left leg, causing her to be in pain. Even though she tries her best, getting rid of the piece of Mind Flayer inside her leg becomes increasingly painful. However after a long, painful try, Eleven finally manages to get rid of that part of Mind Flayer out of her body.
However, before the battle of Starcourt mall starts, Eleven tries to crush a can of coke with her powers, and when she fails to do so, she finds herself powerless.
Although there is no exact answer of the question why did El lose her powers in season 3, it was presumed to be due to the exhaustion of El’s powers in the battle against Mind Flayer and the part of Mind Flayer being stuck in her leg.
Although the answer to the question, why did El lose her powers in season 3 was presumed to be due to El being exhausted after the battle with Mind Flayer, Stranger Things Season 4 has made out the reason to be slightly different from that instead. So, here was the whole Season 3 explanation of Eleven’s loss of powers.
